I couldn't agree with you more about the lyrics. It's the thing that holds me back from loving Phish too. I'll admit to having seen them around a dozen times while in college, and having fun at all the shows. But I've also had a blast at Jimmy Buffet shows, and that music isn;t even half as good as Phish.

The songs can be really technically impressive, and the talent of the players is absolutely beyond reproach. But there is just no emotional content or significance or even seriousness to latch on to. It's like it's all some big joke or novelty act.

not to worry, when Trey gets fat, old and grows a beard, he will be more beloved.

Seriously, I thinh there is a lot of soul and heart in Phish, but mostly for the younger generations who can relate. I think they play with a lot of soul - but so many of us are becoming our parents... "WILL YOU TURN THAT SHIT OFF??!!"

admit it clones! hehe
